Id say Moulson was more of a penguins mistake than he was an islander one, wouldnt you?
Technically it was Shero that let him walk, but he took over right as that off-season's roster decisions were being made so he had to defer a lot of things to the scouting staff. In hindsight giving up on him was a mistake for the Pens and for LA two seasons later. Shero has said as much.

My point was you're willing to write off a 22 year old centre as "garbage" because can't crack the deepest group of centres in the NHL. I was pointing out the irony involved because the Moulson took 4 more years and 2 more teams before he cracked an NHL roster. Clearly players can be good NHLers even if they're in the minors at 22; Moulson is just one of may guys that prove this.
